#7 - root/install - can't uderstand instructions:(

by lolala » Sun May 01, 2011 9:31 am

Hi,
My question regards this part of the instructions:

Copy: root/install/*.*
To: install

I didn't have the install folder in my files, so I created it. (but I'm not sure of this is what I should do either)

Now, what does *.* stand for?
There's no file in the unzipped folder with this name.

It's the first mod I'm trying to install, so sorry if my question seems silly.

Appreciate your help:)

*.* means every file and every folder, it is a wildcard.

The index page of the forum didn't work and started working again after I deleted this 'install' folder, which only proves I had done sth wrong;

Can someone please provide some explanations for dummies concerning #7?

Thanks wolfman 24, does it mean I should recreate this install folder and the index page will work once everything is contained in it?

what it means is that you should upload the install folder to your root folder, after you have made the other changes point your browser ot the index.php file of the install folder.
